Presentation Title: ‘Navigating Change & Fostering Excellence’
Outline: How did we as leaders at Slack navigate change through generation-defining events whilst fostering a world class design team?
Join me as I share out the framework our design team used for a healthy team shift and the formula behind our team’s operational success – including setting up an L&D program from scratch, creating a strong team identity, increasing our external brand awareness, creating a robust hiring and staffing plan, and much more.
